Scroll down to see which trends you should bring into your home this season.
Pinterest Trends Sage
Included among Pinterest's predictions for the biggest home trends of 2018 was sage, one of the more approachable green hues. A little weightier and more universal than other springtime colors, this green calms and grounds your space, all while maintaining an airiness. Who said it wasn’t easy being green?
Pinterest Trends Lavender
The herb lavender relaxes and soothes, and you can bring the same energy into your home by using the color into your decor. In its traditional sense, lavender might seem a bit juvenile, but as the trend makes its way across the internet, people are finding ways to give the traditionally sugary pale purple a little more depth and sophistication. Combining lavender with smoky greens and grays tones will help anchor the color and leave your home feeling modern and refreshing.
Yellow Pillow Bedside Table 4460x4460
When it comes to home decor, it's true that sometimes the smallest accessories make the biggest impact. Fringe pillows, while a minor update, are a really easy way to modernize your home. The are available for purchase in pretty much any home goods store, and you can get them in shades that will complement your existing furniture. Visitors will think you shop at luxury boutiques, all for the super low price of one cute pillow.
Pinterest Trends Resort Style
While a getaway to Montego Bay might not be in your budget, there is a way to bring the island vibes into your home and make your bedroom look like it's steps away from a white-sand beach. To start small, prioritize natural light in the space and emphasize soft lighting in your lamps and overhead lighting, then bring in some white or neutral linens and an excess of matching pillows. Add some dark wood elements to bring out the contrast — like a headboard, table, or accessories — and bingo, you’ve got a resort feel right there in your home. Sure, it may not be close to the blue waters of Jamaica, but it just might feel like it is.
Pinterest Trends Patterned Houseplants
While we might be acquainted with more traditional patterns — like on a rug or wallpaper — this trend looks to nature to bring them instead. Patterned leafy plants are a great way to subtly charge up visual interest in your home — and they're dominating Pinterest boards these days. For an easy foray into this trend, try a plant like an easy going prayer plant or a snake leaf plant. To take it a step further, try a plant with colored leaves, like pink or purple.
Pinterest Trends Palm Leaf
Palm Leaf in a Vase
Love the look of plants but lacking a green thumb? No worries, you can still bring the vitality of plants into your home — and with a lot less effort, too. One of the quickest home updates you can make, the palm-leaf-in-a-vase is a simple but effective way to update your home, especially if you don't have the patience to worry about when you last watered the plants.
Pinterest Trends Stoneware
Yes, everything old can be new again. Perhaps the sturdiest trend on this list, ceramic "stoneware" tableware is back in — and it's an appealing way to look to the past, but with fresh eyes. It's the perfect way to bring an "earthy, modern aesthetic" into your humble abode and adds a bit of weight to your table that will leave your food looking just as pretty as your centerpiece. To freshen stoneware up from its 80s shag-carpet associations, try buying it in a fun, colorful glaze.
Pinterest Trends Statement Door
Say goodbye to wallflower status, and hello to being the boldest house on the block. No one can darken your door when it's painted in a fun, bright color, like red, yellow, or even blue. This trend definitely stands out and makes a real impact to your home's curb appeal. Looking for something with a little more oomph? Try painting or wallpapering your ceiling. Statement doors and a bold ceiling? Now that's impact — and isn't that what we're all here for?
